Corriculum Vitae

Undergraduate research

Undergraduate students who are interested in probability or analysis are welcome to work on your honour projects or UROPS projects with me. Concrete models, simply-stated problems, explicit computations, and clear-cut results are my favourite, and hope you like them too.


In the First semester of academic year 2018/2019, I teach MA3111 Complex Analysis I.

For courses I have taught in the National University of Singapore and in the University of Michigan and Brandeis University, see my previous teaching.


I work in random matrix theory. From the linear algebra for sophomores to the ultimate "M" theory for all the physical world, matrices are fantasy for generations of mathematicians. Over the last decades, ideas from integrable systems, statistical physics, probability theory and representation theory, problems from statistics, wireless communication and genetics, and advanced analytical techniques have been introduced into the playground of matrices. The result of the fusion is the random matrix theory. The dazzling ideas, important problems and powerful techniques make random matrix theory thriving, and the ubikquitous matrix tricks make it inviting.

Currently I am also interested in one dimensional nonequilibrium particle systems in the Kardar-Parisi-Zhang (KPZ) universality class. Simple-looking models like the Asymmetric Simple Exclusion Process (ASEP) have deep structures, and the collective behaviours of the large particle systems show the same feature as those of large random matrix models.

You can find my publications here.

In 2014 we had a reading seminar of the paper Macdonald Processes by Borodin and Corwin. My notes are available here.
